On Wednesday 1st July, 400 talented lawyers descended upon the capital. The Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards (LALYs) is run by the LAPG and every year celebrates the work of the UK’s top grassroots legal talent.
Once again this year we were proud to sponsor the Social and Welfare Award which was won by Jo Renshaw of Turpin & Miller. Congratulations Jo!
It was a pleasure to witness some of our Legal Aid clients being recognised for their hard work over the past year too. Congratulations to Sarah Cove from Miles & Partners and Mark Ashford from TV Edwards. Sarah won Family Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year while Mark picked up Criminal Defence Lawyer of the Year.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners. A fantastic evening was had by all and we are looking forward to the 2016 LALYs already.
